Busy at Work, Busy on the Water

Scenic Deer Creek
This week has been one of the longest and oddest weeks I've had in a while. The kiddos at school were acting up, I was sick Wednesday morning, there was a flash thunderstorm Thursday, and the fishing was pretty off.
Although the fishing was sort of difficult, I spent some time at Horseshoe Lake, Sacramento River, and Deer Creek catching a few here and there.

A Little Bit of Spring on the Fly

Smaller Horseshoe Cat
The spring wind is in the air. Consistent days of wind are the norm as well as bad allergies. Many anglers believe that we are about a month ahead of season schedule. With early arrival of steelhead, stripers, and shad, the weather is feeling like early summer yet we're only in April! While waiting for trout season to open, I've been fishing at Horseshoe Lake and the North Fork of the Feather River.

Do You Even Tie?

List of Master Tiers
Amanda and I spent some time in Redding this weekend to check out Redding's Fly Tying Expo at Turtle Bay Aquarium. We got to meet and talk to some of the best tiers in the world as well as enjoy the rest of the exhibits at the park. All very friendly, knowledgeable, and amazing people. Fly fishing heroes!

Windy Days, Fun On The Feather, and Truckee Love

Begin the Truckee River Canyon

It's been pretty windy with the spring wind starting to come in, but its learn to fish the gusts or don't fish. The wind is my friend... unless its blowing at 30 MPH. Casting and feeling the take can be difficult with the wind blowing your line and rod around but there is still good fishing to be had. The Feather River, Horseshoe Lake, the Middle Fork of the Feather River, and the Truckee River were some of the places I spent this week fighting the winds.
